I really dislike it when peole pronounce it "Noob" like the word tube.

It irritates me. A lot.

But I'm also the person who has said 'lol' out loud.

I don't EVER say the word n00b, it is only typed.

Saying LOL is also fail.

It was a sign I was on the computer too much in high school, haha. I was 16 and we were all laughing and I accidently said 'lol'. It got quiet real quick.

But I am the master of epic fails.
